Rated 5 out of 5áby aUSconsumer Loving It!
My 4th LL Bean Turtleneck and appreciate the wide range of colors & collar choices. We have a real old fashioned winter here and have been layering these with sweaters. Haven't had them long enough to notice shrinking but did note others saying to order a size up to allow shrinkage & as I enjoy soft & "roomy comfortable" so far these have fit the bill.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Cjbt Sooooo disappointed
All of these shirts run so short. Love the colors, but even gentle wash and hang dry, they are very short in body and sleeve. I am 5' 6". High waist slacks and they pull out.

I like the weight of the knit, but the fit was not as comfortable as I would like, even before washing. The neck did not seem to fit well. Then I noticed that my shade teal heather shirt shrank after wearing a couple of times, washing in cold weather and hanging to dry. I can still wear it, but the sleeves are short, and it feels small all over. I have't yet noticed shrinkage with the solid color shirt.

Rated 2 out of 5áby LongTallFormerTexan Not a good fit
I am 5'8" tall and have fairly long arms. I purchased two of these mock-turtleneck shirts in my usual size, but the sleeves were too short. The cuffs were too tight for me to even push up the sleeves to wear them as 3/4 length sleeves. So I sent them back and ordered the next larger size. The sleeves fit when they first arrived, but they shrank when I washed them -- in cold water, and using a clothes dryer. The rest of the shirt still fits but the sleeves seem to get shorter with each wash. They are now an inch too short. I don't want to go through the bother of sending them back again, so I just put up with it, but I don't like it. I wish I had never bought them.

I love these shirts. I wear an XL and the fit is true to size. I have found the 'heather' colors shrink over time a bit more than the solids even when washed in cold water and hung up to dry. Still my go-to brand for mock turtlenecks.

LL Bean quality, as I expected.
Soft fabric, perfect fit, no scratchy tags. I love the mock - I got two for a trip to Seattle. Not much cause to wear them in South Florida, but, just like all my LL Bean stuff, when I need it, it will still look and feel great!

Gets shorter each time I wash it - sleeves are now 3" above wrist & won't stay tucked in. Circumference is perfect!
I'm returning it, and really want the same thing, but without the shrinkage. Wish there was a bit of poly in it to prevent the shrinkage.

I am a typical size 'x-small' I took a chance ordering this because LL Bean is known for its target audience for a fuller cut figure. So I washed it. It shrunk up 3" at the hem, and the sleeves are now above my wrist bones. Overall the length shrunk up 15% while in the width it shrunk by 5%. All this after following washing instructions for a 100% cotton top. Buyer beware.;-(

Bought this for my mother in her regular size which is med petite. Looked good until I washed it. Then the sleeves shrunk up a lot, and the neck got wider. So then it didn't fit at all. Try regular rather than petite to allow for shrinkage if you must order this. Also not suitable for the elderly because of the big floppy neck. Customer service was great as they allowed me to return this item.

This is a well made product, as you would expect for LL Bean. However, I chose to return it. The tag sewed into the side seam is extremely uncomfortable. I very carefully tried to remove it and was left with a large hole in the side seam. I hope the designers read this and address this problem.
